On 15th January 2:30pm local social welfare office staff and some police men came a raided the Kota based Emmanuel Mission office and later ceased the office saying that the ministry is not cooperating with them. The police then asked all the staff to leave the office and took photocopies of many files.
This harassment is happening in spite of the Rajasthan high court and Supreme Court’s written permission to operate the mission as before. The government department is unnecessarily creating problems for the mission work. The department sometimes take the children from Immanuel orphanage and make unwarranted public statement in the media to harass and stop the mission work. The officials have ceased the missions head office without any no prior notice or information. The officials have not even given a show cause notice or have asked for any documents or explanation and unilaterally ceased the office.
Emmanuel Mission was founded by late Bishop M A Thomas and are into humanitarian activities.
